Neurobiology of learning
in early childhood

Our lab explores the developmental origins of intelligent behavior.

Key questions are: How do we learn to understand information? (e.g. language, letters, numbers)

How do we build mental models of our experience? (e.g. a mental lexicon, a quantification system)

How do we learn to use these models for intelligent actions? (e.g. math problem solving)

We conduct brain imaging studies with children from all over the world.
